Samsung has again started rolling out the Android 3.2 Honeycomb update for the Galaxy Tab 10.1 Wi-Fi edition in the United States.The company had originally rolled out the update last week, but had to pull it back since it broke Wi-Fi functionality for most users who installed the update.
The Android 3.2 Honeycomb update does not bring much visual changes, but does bring a noticeable improvement in the performance stability of the Tab. Google has also tweaked the GPU drivers in this update, so Tab 10.1 owners should expect to see a notable improvement in the gaming department and benchmarks as well. Other than this, the update also brings a compatibility mode for unsupported apps, ala the iPad’s 2x mode for iPhone specific apps.
The update is rolling out via OTA (Over-The-Air), and should hit all Tab 10.1 owners in the next couple of weeks. Tab 10.1 owners, who have installed the previous broken Honeycomb build, need to download the update manually via KIES and then install it on the tablet manually.
This is the last Android 3.x related update for the Galaxy Tab 10.1. Tab Owners should expect the latest version of Android, Ice Cream Sandwich, to land on their tablet sometime in late-Q1 of 2012.
